Toast MODA is a group of early to mid-career designers and design-lovers who collaborate with MODA to celebrate design and connect with each other! Join us.

Toast is a collective of fashion designers, industrial designers, graphic artists, architects, design aficionados, and more. Toast is dubbed Toast to represent the blank slate quality of our goals and the radiant potential of our passions. Born from one of the greatest innovations of all time — sliced bread.
